Met Opera Encore Broadcast: Verdi's La Traviata

Marty Sohl/Met Opera

The 2020-21 Metropolitan Opera Radio Broadcast season continues with Verdi’s La Traviata, an encore broadcast from last year, Sat. Jan. 16th at 1:00 p.m. on WEKU Classical.

Soprano Aleksandra Kurzak starred as the iconic heroine Violetta, who gives up her life as a courtesan to pursue an enduring love. Tenor Dmytro Popov was the impulsive Alfredo, and baritone Quinn Kelsey sang Giorgio Germont, Alfredo’s moralistic father. Karel Mark Chichon led the Met Orchestra and Chorus in this performance of Verdi’s intimate and heart-rending tragedy.

La Traviata will be heard over the Toll Brothers-Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network at 1:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, January 16 on WEKU Classical.
